The Chicken War – Gay Marriage – Choice ...

The Question? Why Is Homosexuality Condemned In The Bible? Adultery? Fornication?

The latest skirmish in the nation’s culture wars began when Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy told the Baptist Press that the company was “guilty as charged” for backing “the biblical definition of a family” (see Culture War Flares).   But the most important element in the equation is missing — i.e., why does the Bible condemn homosexuality?  Not to know the answer to this question is to make one’s self a victim of blind choice.   What is the consequence of the homosexual lifestyle?  And on a related note, what is the consequence of the abandonment of biblical morality from a modern cultural perspective?

The Warning Of The Apostle: If it is true that there are higher realities of being that are totally inconceivable to the mind of the undeveloped faith-based believer (see Mysteries Of The Gospel) — and by virtue of their immaturity, the biblical authors were powerless to explain in detail many of the important Gospel teachings and concepts — then the spiritually mature author’s of the scriptures who were themselves enlightened to these higher realities, remained virtually powerless to do anything more than to provide the people with a list of do’s and don’ts, so that they are better able to evolve to a mature understanding and comprehension of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay.   To totally ignore these do’s and don’ts, without knowing the consequence of one’s choices and actions, is paramount to walking out onto a freeway blindfolded. 

I always found it truly amazing that readers of the scriptures could read the words of Paul where he states that the “natural” mind of the Christians who he had himself taught, would reject the truths pertaining to the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom as utter “foolishness” — portraying himself as an “ambassador in bonds” who was unable to speak plainly.   And from this perspective, the best that Paul could do for those who he portrayed as entry-level Christians who were “babes in Christ”, was to provide them a series of do’s and don’ts that would assist them in evolving through the stages of spiritual immaturity that made it impossible for them to comprehend the True Gospel Meaning and Objectives. 

There are two ultra important possibilities that must be considered — i.e., the position at least in cultural practice has been advanced by Bishop John Shelby Spong whose side has been portrayed as such: “Although he admits that the Bible is full of statements about sexual virtue, including prohibitions against premarital sex, adultery, and homosexuality, the authors of the Bible were hopelessly uninformed, lacking the benefits of modern research. One author in particular, the Apostle Paul, may have been driven by an inner struggle with his sexual identity” (see Rescuing The Bible).   And the other side is that the biblical authors were not only well informed as to the reason why the scriptures condemned the cultural immorality of hooking-up outside of marriage, but that the facts could not be explained because of the very reasons why Paul warned that the “natural” organic mind of man was too immature to comprehend the higher reality of the soul and man’s ultimate spiritual reality which he must discover and manifest within his own life as he seeks to bring about the next stage of birth.    

I use Bishop Spong as an example of man’s cultural folly, because I have in the past communicated directly with him (see Reply To Bishop Spong).   I also replied and communicated directly with Bishop Gene Robinson’s office on his claim that the condemnation of homosexuality by Paul was based upon a prohibition of hetersexuals from engaging in same sex acts, and not homosexuals (see Reply: Same Sex Acts Unnatural For Heterosexuals) — with Bishop Robinson making the profoundly ignorant statement that “It never occurred to anyone in ancient times that a certain minority of us would be born being affectionately-oriented to people of the same sex”.   And as revealed in my reply to Bishop Robinson, what we are witnessing in the hostility to the position presented in the scriptures, is the result of error begetting even greater error — and the fact that if you perpetually repeat a lie, that it will come to be accepted as factually true.   
Over the past 1400 years the Church has been in countless ways confronted by the question: Do you believe Jesus and his original disciples?  Or do you believe the dictates of the Roman Emperor Justinian? (see Dictates Of The Emperor)   And when Bishop Spong and Robinson conclude that homosexual behavior is approved by God, they ignore the original teachings that homosexuality is the result of the pre-existent actions of the people themselves (see The Early Church On Predestination).    And that those who are born homosexual, have merely confined themselves to The Prison that Jesus made reference to where the biblical reality is lived out: “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV).

If Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy and the Baptists were truly mature Christians who had themselves fulfilled the Gospel Objectives, Mr. Cathy would have explained why the Bible condemns our modern culture of immorality.   He would have explained about The Esoteric Reality Of Virginity And Sex — and he would have enlightened the people about The Holographic Pattern Of Sex that is the basis of the biblical prohibitions and morality that the people in our modern culture find outdated.  And while Bishop Spong would like to believe that “…the authors of the Bible were hopelessly uninformed, lacking the benefits of modern research” — once The Holographic Pattern Of Sex , is understood, it is easily demonstrated that both bishops as well as our modern culture are representative of the embodiment of absolute ignorance — and ignorance that is depriving the people of even the opportunity of bringing about the next stage of birth that Jesus taught was necessary to enter into Life in the Kingdom.       

Jesus condemned the Pharisees as heretics — portraying them as the offspring of the Devil — for throwing away the Key of Knowledge in their carnal interpretations and misuse of the scriptures.    The reality of the Spiritual Marriage of man and woman being the environment of the Divine Design of Creator-God to bring about the next stage of birth that Jesus portrayed as being necessary to enter into the Kingdom, is presented and explored at Marriage – The Warning Of The Apostle – The Key Of Knowledge.   That both liberal Christians and the far left of our culture would like naive people to believe that the very Divine Design of Creation has somehow been done away with, is the epitome of their own philosophical folly.

Kaitlyn Fonzi & Intuitive Development

In an interview with FoxNews anchor John Scott, Kaitlyn Fonzi who is a neighbor of mass murderer James Holmes explained how she went to his apartment — and though there was no answer to her knocking, and when she twisted the door knob, it appeared to be open, which would have enabled her to complain about the disturbing techno-music that had been turned up to full blast — but fortunately for her, a voice told her not to open the door.   And even more fortunately, she listened to the voice which warned her of the impending danger of a booby-trapped door which would have ignited an explosion that would have instantly killed her.   And virtually all of the news accounts which made reference to this interview all played down and even ignored the words of Kaitlyn that she heard a voice which told her not to open the door.   Of all the news casts that I heard, only the Fox & Friends newscast flashed a screen, Saved By Intuition — and only Alisyn Camerota  (a woman) even mentioned the importance of Kaitlyn’s intuitively sensed voice of warning not to open the door.   Which means that we can chalk this up to another life saved, by an intuitively heard voice of warning that the pseudo-intellectuals and authorities in our culture attempt to dismiss as irrelevant in the life of men and women.   

Einstein, who much more than most intellectuals was highly aware of the source of his insights and achievements, openly stated: “The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift” (see Intuitive Mind vs Linear-Rational).   And if I was to say that the whole substance of our existence and level of cognitive achievement is solely dependent upon the development of the very intuitive spheres of mind that the pseudo-intellectual and authoritative archons of our superficial plastic culture do everything in their power to suppress — and that Einstein was correct in his assertion that we overwhelmingly promote the linear-servant, while suppressing and even disavowing the intuitive gift that is the key of our advancement beyond an intellectually and spiritually flat-lined society — then I would continue to be ignored and rejected.    What was the source of the voice that Kaitlyn Fonzi heard that saved her life?   And what exactly is the nature and reality of intuition?   Because our alleged experts and scholars can’t even begin to answer these questions, they have intellectually castrated themselves and rendered them pseudo-intellectuals.   And yet, it is these same pseudo-intellectuals who mold the thinking of our children throughout our educational systems right up to our colleges and universities (see Harvard – The Quagmire Of Ignorance).     It is interesting to note that while Harvard was originally intended to be an educational environment that develops the clergy, in all practical applications of this development, they have perpetually suppressed the intuitive spheres of mind that must be developed in order to achieve the original Christian objectives — i.e., quoting from The Heightening And Expansion Of MindAn important insight into the very essence, purpose and higher spiritual objectives of the original teachings of TheWay is contained in an article in the Encyclopedia Britannica under the heading, The History of Christian Mysticism, where it reads: “Although the essence of mysticism is the sense of contact with the transcendent, mysticism in the history of Christianity should not be understood merely in terms of special ecstatic experiences but as part of a religious process lived out within the context of the Christian community. From this perspective mysticism played a vital part in the early church. Early Christianity was a religion of the spirit that expressed itself in the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”.     What is expressed in these words is of the utmost importance.   Why?   Because the original teachings of Jesus was not the blind faith and belief in a prophet or god-man — but rather, the means to transform all Christian disciples of TheWay into prophets and mystics as demonstrated in the words: “…From this perspective mysticism played a vital part in the early church. Early Christianity was a religion of the spirit that expressed itself in the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”.   But, we must then pose the question: Just what is a “…religion of the spirit”?    Like an astronaut who travels beyond the limits of the earth’s atmosphere into outer space, a spiritual religion prepares the seeker/disciple to transcend the barrier of this physical world, and enter into what the biblical authors portrayed as the Kingdom of God which Jesus taught was within us.   But to accomplish this spiritual transcendence, you had to first prepare the physical body to make it an environment that would permit “…the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” to be brought about — and this requires a great amount of effort and preparation. 

When it is realized that mysticism is the development of those spheres of mind that permit the individual to transcend organic physical limitations and begin to intuitively access the Divine Source of Knowledge that possesses the answer to all of man’s questions and his many dilemma’s of life, then the whole foundation of man’s modern-day philosophy and religious ideas must be seen as a cruel hoax that enslaves him in a self-imposed intellectual Diaspora where absolute ignorance reigns.   And as just one such example: When this factual reality of mind-development was pointed out to a North Carolina Superior Court on appeal from the lower District Court, they predicatively dismissed and refused to even hear the matter set before them, without even rendering a decision (see The Cross And The Seat Belt).   

To what degree was the early Church concerned with the development of the intuitive spheres of mind?   The Apostle Peter who is quoted by his disciple Clement explains that the grave flaw in man’s attempt to understand both the scriptures, and all of life itself, is seen in his attempt to rely solely upon linear human reasoning where he states: “…therefore great care is to be taken, that when the law of God is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind. For there are many sayings in the divine Scriptures which can be drawn to that sense which every one has preconceived for himself; and this ought not to be done. For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without” (see Flawed Human Reasoning).  In making reference to The True Prophet who Jesus portrayed as the One Teacher, Peter warns that: “Hence, O beloved Clement, if you would know the things pertaining to God, you have to learn them from Him alone, because He alone knows the truth. For if any one else knows anything, he has received it from Him or from His disciples”.   If we ask the question: What is being said to the believer who desires to be faithful to the Gospel Teachings?   In the same way that the believer is commanded to seek out the One Teacher, and the commandment that “…when the law of God (scriptures) is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind” — it is being stated that there is only One Source of Truth — and that the wisdom of man will misguide the seeker.   By design, human reasoning is incapable of understanding the true meaning of the scriptures — i.e., “…therefore great care is to be taken, that when the law of God is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind.”   And neither should you listen to other men’s gravely flawed interpretations of the scriptures — i.e., “…For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without”.   Jesus taught that there is only ONE Source of Truth, and the disciple/seeker must learn directly from that One Teacher (see The True Prophet).   And thus, these words which are representative of the core Gospel teachings, remain inconceivable to the modern faith-based believer who is divided and disenfranchised from the very essence and objectives of the Gospel teachings — overwhelmed and anchored to a carnal mindset that Jesus himself portrayed as the“outer darkness” of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) — spiritually disenfranchised by innumerable man-made opinions, factions and sects which totally alienate the believer from the Truth and the Kingdom. 

Thus, the ability of each individual believer to gain access to the Presence of the True Prophet that dwells within them — to transcend physical limitations and tap into this Inner Source of All-Knowing Wisdom — is directly dependent upon the development of the believers intuitive spheres of mind that fulfills the original spiritual objectives of the teachings of Jesus — i.e., “…Early Christianity was a religion of the spirit that expressed itself in the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”.   And without the development of man’s intuitive spheres of mind, the linear-intellectual becomes totally flat-lined and spiritually castrated — as is the case in both our Churches and educational institutions today.   

Even when a woman such as Kaitlyn Fonzi who has absolutely no ideological, political, secular or sectarian ax to grind, attributes the force that saves her life to her hearing a voice from deep within her mind warning her not to open the door and ask the occupant to simply lower the music, her witness to the existence of this voice from the other side of the inner physical divide is predicatively ignored.   Why?   Because the male-oriented linear spheres of mind have been perpetually striving to dominate and even suppress the feminine-orientated intuitive spheres of mind throughout every aspect of our modern pseudo-intellectual culture.  In a recently published book entitled Thought Revolution: How To Unlock Your Inner Genius by William A. Donius it is strongly suggested that the male-oriented linear-rational even lies and deceives the feminine-intuitive in order to dominate the intuitive (see The Opening And Unlocking Of The Mind.   And from a practical perspective, that would be synonymous with saying that men tend to lie to women in order to dominate and control them for their own purposes.   In the book Brain Sex by Anne Moir and David Jessel the authors write: “What you will read in this book about the differences between men and women may make both sexes angry or smug. Both reactions are wrong. If women have reason to rage, it is not because science has set at naught their hard-won struggle towards equality; their wrath should rather be directed at those who have sought to misdirect and deny them their very essence”. The book then goes on to embrace the very real statement that “Women should contribute their specific female gifts rather than waste their energies in the pursuit of a sort of surrogate masculinity. A woman’s greater imagination can solve intractable problems – be they professional or domestic – at one apparently intuitive stroke.”   But the fact that every aspect of the development of the intuitive spheres of mind is suppressed by our linear-driven culture, has had the effect of inhibiting man’s intellectual development beyond only a very low level of cognitive human potential.   

In more ancient cultures young girls were never taught in the manner of young boys — they never studied Torah, or learned in any other linear-based systems — because their feminine strength is her greater intuitive insight that she must often be a resource for her husband and male counterpart.   Without the intuitive, the linear is dead and flat-lined.   The linear needs the insight of the intuitive, as does the intuitive need the insight and impressions of the linear — and if you remove or attempt to suppress either side of the equation, you inhibit the growth and development of the other at that point in its evolution.   

The question is often posed as to Why Bad Things Happen To Seemingly Good People?   While the answer to this and other such questions is of paramount importance in the development of the mind and understanding of all peoples, because of their predisposed thinking, beliefs and philosophical ideas, few people are even prepared to contemplate the answer to such questions.   Thus, in the same way that the Apostle Peter warned that the scriptures cannot be “…read according to the understanding of our own mind [and linear thinking]. For there are many sayings in the divine Scriptures which can be drawn to that sense which every one has preconceived for himself; and this ought not to be done. For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without” (see Flawed Human Reasoning) — the same is true with respect to all of life — and the linear reasoning without the balanced and equal input from the intuitive opposite, will always anchor the mind to the gravest of intellectual folly that always drives the thinking of man in the wrong direction. 


Was Jesus A Pharisee? Is Spiritual Israel Synonymou ...

I recently replied on a Nazarene-Judaism forum to a person who attempted to portray Yeshua/Jesus as a Pharisee (see Netzarim – Jews? Christians? Or Judas Reborn?).   My reply holds an important statement of reality that is just as relevant to Netazrim or Messanic Judaism, as it is Christianity.

You are teaching others to go and learn from other men — ignoring and throwing out the very essential spiritual tenets of the teachings of Yeshua and TheWay.    In the words of Ya’kov (James?): “Not many of you should presume to be teachers, my brothers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly” (James 3:1).     And in these words is embodied one of the primary teachings of the New Covenant that has been discarded and rejected by Christians and Jews alike.   Now of course if you feel that Shmuley Boteach or Hyman Maccoby  knows more about the teachings of his brother, the historical man Yeshua, then you are keeping company with the spiritually disenfranchised such as Martin Luther who portrayed this Epistle as being one of “straw”.    But Martin Luther was merely expressing his condition of profound ignorance from which Protestantism was born during the Reformation — Shmuley Boteach and Hyman Maccoby were peddling their books as a source of gaining mammon — but what is your excuse?    Do you really think that Yeshua was a member of a sect which he portrayed as the “offspring of the Devil”? — i.e., “Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word. You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it” (John 8:43-44 NKJ).

The foregoing words were spoken just after Yeshua said to the Jews who had become his followers: Then Jesus turned to the Jews who had claimed to believe in him: “If you stick with this, living out what I tell you, you are my disciples for sure. Then you will experience for yourselves the truth, and the truth will free you” (John 8:31-32 TheMessage) — and once again, neither Christian or Jew understand even these words which are of the utmost importance.   Yeshua didn’t say that they would believe the truth — or that they would discern what they believed would be dogmatic truth out of the scriptures or some book written by other men — but rather, Yeshua conveyed to them that if they follow in TheWay, that they “…will experience for yourselves the truth, …and it is this SELF-EXPERIENCED TRUTH that …will free you” from the error and ignorance that consumes the people of this world — and especially the blind guides who portray themselves as rabbis and teachers.  

The teachings of Yeshua and TheWay are representative of a purely spiritual path.   By properly applying the Key of Knowledge — and transforming one’s own self into the Final Temple — the objective of these teachings was to enter the Inner Kingdom through the “narrow strait gate” (see http://GateOfEden.com ) and learn directly from the One Teacher that the Original Ebionite Nazirenes called The True Prophet.   But, the carnal Jews who had been slain by the “letter that killeth” (see Spiritual Defeat) — as well as the vast majority of the Gentiles who were too heathen and pagan in their thinking to comprehend and embrace a purely spiritual religion — continued to interpret the Gospel teachings in accord with their spiritually disenfranchised mindset and thinking.   

Quoting the opening of An Inconvenient TruthWho was Jesus?  Man, Myth or God?   Theologian Albert Schweitzer suggested that there will never be one answer to that question.   He said that looking for Jesus in history is like looking down a well: You see only your own reflection.  The “real” Jesus, Schweitzer says, will remain “a stranger and an enigma”  You portray the historical Yeshua as a “learned Pharisee”, because that is your own image that you see when looking down the proverbial well.   And in the same way, others see a man, a myth, and even a god — and they too are looking down their own dogmatic well.   But it is because of the  Key of Knowledge and the teaching that (as the lost prodigal son) each and every person has the innate ability to enter the Inner Kingdom and learn the Truth that will set them free from the dark error of this world, that Ya’kov warned that those who portray themselves as teachers — when a True Guide and Shepherd conveys to the seeker how to enter the presence and learn directly from the True Teacher — and why these pseudo-teachers and counterfeit shepherds …will be judged more strictly”  

What this means is that these words now apply to you — i.e., “If I had not come and spoken to them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin”  (John 15:22).   Why do you no longer have a cloak if you continue to sin knowingly?   Because at the above links the original teachings of Yeshua have been restored, and the path to proving the Truth that sets a seeker free is no longer shrouded in dogmatic folly.   Quoting from The Third Fatal Mistake – Not Proving The Truth:  While the Christians, like the Jews before them who threw away the Key of Knowledge, look for the Kingdom to come outwardly upon the earth, the Gospel itself states that the Kingdom will never come upon the earth, because it is within you — and it is therein that you must seek it: “And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God comes not with observation: Neither shall they say, See here! or, see there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you” (Luke 17:20-21).   If it is true and the Kingdom is within you, then the question that Christians should be asking, is how must it be entered?   The answer is the proper application of the Key of Knowledge by turning the scriptures within your own mind and being — i.e., “How terrible it will be for you experts in religious law! For you hide the key to knowledge from the people. You don’t enter the Kingdom yourselves, and you prevent others from entering” (Luke 11:52).  Thus, in understanding these words spoken to the Pharisees, the questions must be asked: How did the Pharisees and Jewish authorities “…hide the key to knowledge from the people”?   Why did Jesus condemn the leaders of the Jews for failing to enter the Kingdom themselves? — i.e., “…You don’t enter the Kingdom yourselves”!   And how did the religious leaders of the Jews“…prevent others from entering?”   That the primary objective of the Gospel is to prepare and enable the seeker/disciple to enter the Kingdom, is further demonstrated in Jesus’ condemnation of the blind religious leaders as seen in the words: “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the kingdom of heaven in men’s faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to” (Matt 23:13 NIV).  Which means that the Kingdom of God is not something that will come if we wait for it — but rather, it is a reality which man must seek and find — within himself.     

Now that you know the Truth and TheWay, you have the greater responsibility to remove the beam from your own eyes by seeking to fulfill the Law within yourself in the manner that our Brother Yeshua did (see The Ten Words) — and once you have proven your faithfulness to the Word, then you will be able to see clearly and remove the specks from the eyes of your brothers and sisters, and guide them in TheWay of the Truth and the Kingdom. 

Do We Need The Book Of Mormon? The Torah? Gospels? ...

Over the years I have had my people come to the Nazirene Disciple forum promoting the Book of Mormon.   But do we need another scripture?   Thus, the following is my reply to the latest arrival promoting the Book of Mormon. I have nothing a…
